Bukhara Reopens After Shutdown for Health Code Violations; Second Time in 6 Months

The Bukhara restaurant reopened on Thursday after being shutdown on August 23 by the city for health code violations -- for the second time in six months. On Thursday the Centre Street restaurant had reopened, but with very few customers around 6 pm. There was a sign on the door that said the business has an "A" sanitary inspection grade from the city. Another sign said that health code violations can be reported by calling the Boston Public Health Commission at 617-534-4718. UniversalHub.com reported that the Centre Street restaurant was shutdown earlier this month for violations "...including a lack of hot water in the sink used by employees to wash their hands and equipment that needed cleaning, including a can opener, a microwave and the inside of an ice machine."


Bukhara Temporarily Closed After Permit Suspended Due to Failed Inspection

Bukhara, an Indian restaurant on Centre Street, has been closed since March 1st after its license was temporarily suspended by the city due to failing an inspection. There is also a sign on the door that says the restaurant is closed for renovations. Although Bukhara has an A rating on the city's website, the restaurant’s permit was suspended for several violations after a March 1st inspection. The restaurant was cited for 12 separate violations. It is commonplace for restaurants to be cited for violations during inspections.
